Foooooooood

I am jealous of my friends who have grown up LDS.  There are a multitude of reasons why, but one of them is that their mothers made them dinner!  I grew up on mac & cheese and hot dogs.  That's pretty much it.  When my parents were together my dad made real meals, but by then I was so picky I never ate them.  Now, I refuse to let my kids suffer the same picky fate I did, and I try to cook for them every day.  I'd say a good 80% of our meals are baked from scratch.  I even bake my own bread!!  No electronic breadmaker here, folks.

Anyways, there are a few meals that I stumble onto on Pinterest and I think to myself, "BY THE GODS, THIS LOOKS FANTASTICALLY UNHEALTHY!  I MUST PLACE THIS THING INTO MY PIEHOLE AND LET MY TUMMY DIGEST ITS BUTTERY GOODNESS!"  Come to find out, it's pretty much a staple at most LDS households.  (And for those of you wondering, yes, I try to eat healthy, but let's face it, when you're raising a miniature army like most Mormon mommies, you can't afford to shop at Whole Paycheck.)

So, long story short, tonight I'm making a Taco Ring.  It looks fantastic, and only the packaged crescent roll dough is unhealthy, so YAY!  If anyone wants to leave any recipes that were a staple in their home growing up, I'd love to have them!  I secretly can't wait until our ward decides to compile a cookbook.  I hear that happens in every ward ever about every 10 years or so.
